Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Antoine Walker and Al Harrington would rather forget their first game with the Atlanta Hawks. Offseason acquisitions Walker and Harrington had woeful shooting performances as the Hawks were routed by the Phoenix Suns, 112-82, in the season opener for both teams. Walker scored 21 points and Harrington added 13, but they shot a combined 13-of-38 for the Hawks, who connected on just 33 percent overall (32-of-96). "We were sloppy," said Walker, who grabbed 13 rebounds. "We didn't make shots and got a little frustrated. We can't have those kind of lapses." Amare Stoudemire scored 23 points on 9-of-13 shooting and Joe Johnson added 17 on 7-of-10 for the Suns, who made 51 percent (45-of-89). "Atlanta's not really the best team we are going to play against, but it was good for us to come out and play strong, especially on the defensive end," Stoudemire said. "With the lineup we had tonight against their lineup, it was a great matchup. I was more than ready, and with the additions this year, (it) is going to be different." Phoenix held just a 28-23 lead after the first quarter but outscored Atlanta, 36-12, in the second period. Stoudemire scored 10 points in the period for the Suns, who shot 61 percent (14-of-23) and limited the Hawks to 26 percent (6-of-23). The Suns, who led by as many as 40 points, got to rest their starters for much of the second half. Yuta Tabuse, a 5-9 guard, became the first Japanese player to see NBA action and scored seven points in the final 10 minutes. Steve Nash scored 12 points in 24 minutes in the first game of his second stint with the Suns. Fellow free agent pickup Quentin Richardson scored just four points on 2-of-9 shooting. "I believe this is going to be a long process for us," Nash said. "I realize Atlanta is a struggling team but we have to be excited. A win is a lot better then a loss the first game." Atlanta's Mike Woodson made his NBA coaching debut and received his first technical foul with 3:06 left in the third quarter. "We didn't compete," Woodson said. "We have to play with some semblance of togetherness. Everybody was offensively playing for themselves and defensively we were non-existent." The Suns posted their first victory on opening night in six years and matched their biggest season-opening win, a 136-106 triumph over Golden State exactly 15 years ago. Phoenix outscored Atlanta on the break, 20-5, and held a 55-54 rebounding advantage. "We played pretty well, especially in the second quarter, when we started moving the ball," Suns Coach Mike D'Antoni said. "It is going to be the same story - if we can rebound and run, we will be pretty good."
